Haiku Bob – Round 12: the odds


bright sunshine
the brilliance of a goal
on my daughter’s face



swirling leaves
every now and then a player
gets loose



abusing the umpire
my accent
well and truly back



not quite reaching
an unassailable lead
low winter sun



a long trail
of yellow leaves
we find a path to goal



hanging on
to a narrow lead
the light this time of year



the odds
of the full-forward missing
three easy shots
